The PTSD brains of children and soldiers - BBC News
Scientists have discovered that the brain structures of traumatised soldiers and children change in the same way. The research reveals that coping mechanisms to deal with extreme stress and abuse actually cause physical changes to the brain. Prof Eamon McCrory from University College London explains. // high alert on threat vigilance and threat detection! // need consistent positive experiences and emotional support!

Prisons overhaul to be announced by David Cameron - BBC News
He will say the "failure" of the current system, with its high reoffending rates and levels of violence, is "scandalous". He is expected to announce prison governors will be given more say over how jails spend their money. [ BUT NOT MORE MONEY AS A WHOLE TO PREVENT, INTERVENE, REINTEGRATE and this was not in the Manifesto ] [...] "Not everyone shows remorse and not everyone seeks redemption. "But I also strongly believe that we must offer chances to change; that for those trying hard to turn themselves around, we should offer hope; that in a compassionate country, we should help those who've made mistakes to find their way back onto the right path." [...] "Prisons are currently violent and overcrowded. As such, they fail everyone: victims, the public, staff and prisoners themselves. [...] outgoing chief inspector of prisons in England and Wales said prisons were "as bad as you could possibly imagine". [...] conditions in adult prisons had deteriorated over the past five years.

Cheryl James Deepcut death: New sexual exploitation claims - BBC News
"The inquest will now be a matter for the coroner, but we will of course continue to cooperate with and provide support to the coroner where needed." Lawyers from human rights campaign group Liberty have asked the coroner, Brian Barker QC, to allow the new witnesses to give evidence and he is expected to make a decision on Monday. Des James's solicitor Emma Norton said: "We have made an application to the coroner to investigate evidence that has come to light that appears to suggest there might have been a system of ordering recruits to have sex with other staff. "We have had a witness come forward to say Cheryl herself disclosed to him that she had been ordered to have sex with another soldier. [...] Pte James, from Llangollen, was one of four soldiers who died at the barracks between 1995 and 2002 amid claims of bullying and abuse.

Apple's “Special Event” was underwhelming, but that's a good thing
I felt less bad for my younger, archiving self than I did for Apple. The parts of our lives we wanted instinctively to endure became ink leaked onto pulp, not files housed in silicon. Paper volumes we still house on oft-dusted bookshelves. It was the technology that Apple designed to usher us into the great, digital future that got thrown out – or, if the technology was lucky, encased inside a dust cover and forgotten about for decades. Apple, in time, learned not only to live with the disposability of digital architecture, but to profit from it... // [ the pendulum will swing back again, on a personal level, but for distribution, digital is so much better! And remember the possibility of data apocalypse ]

Sexism is making women sick | Jessica Valenti | Comment is free | The Guardian
A study published this month in the journal Sex Roles reveals that some of the sexism women face – from catcalling and sexual harassment to sexual objectification and violence – makes women generally more fearful and anxious. The researchers from the University of Missouri-Kansas and Georgia State University found a substantive “link between physical safety concerns and psychological distress”. We already know that violence causes trauma, and that people who are bullied and harassed are more likely to be depressed throughout their lives. Research shows that children who live in violent neighborhoods are more prone to developing PTSD, and that the daily fear they experience changes their psychological make-up so drastically that nightmares, flashbacks and disassociation are common. [...] “It’s normalized, but it has such an effect on your life – women constrain their behaviors every day.”

You’re 16. You’re a Pedophile. You Don’t Want to Hurt Anyone. What Do You Do Now? — Matter — Medium
Elizabeth Letourneau, founding director of the Moore Center for the Prevention of Child Sexual Abuse at Johns Hopkins University, told me. “A lot of these guys don’t want to be sexually abusing children.” We first met at her office one dreary afternoon last February. Out the window, whose sill was flanked by framed photos of her two sons, you could see rain gently blanketing downtown Baltimore. The center’s core mission is “to try to change the way the nation views child sexual abuse, as something that is preventable.” From a desk piled high with books and manila folders full of journal articles, she continued: “We say we’re really concerned about sex offending and we really don’t want children to be sexually offended and we don’t want adults to be raped, but we don’t do anything to prevent it. We put most of our energy into criminal justice, which means that the offense has already happened and often many offenses have already happened.” - via http://bit.ly/1kxvM4S
